The Simple Truth

College-bound high school students are able to tap into many streams of helpful resources.

Other than offering Financial Aid or a FAFSA night where a local college explains how students go about getting into debt, there isn’t much more the high school can do about helping parents figure out how to manage the system as a whole and how to make it work for them specifically. That’s where FAFSAssist™ comes in.

College-bound high school students are able to tap into many streams of helpful resources. Let’s start with their guidance counselors. Even if students don’t get a lot of face time with them they generally can get enough to get them started in the right direction. Representatives from area colleges come to visit and there are college fairs to attend. High schools offer SAT and ACT test prep classes. English teachers provide help with college essays.

But parents are on their own. School counselors don’t want to get involved with assisting students directly with the FAFSA and financial aid forms because they’re afraid they’ll give them the wrong information. They also think that the family’s financial situation is not the information they want to know.

“I’m not going to help with the FAFSA, I am not touching that parent’s tax info.” These are common thoughts in many school counseling departments, not out of task avoidance or malice, but simply out of fear.

Other than offering Financial Aid or a FAFSA night where a local college explains how students go about getting into debt, there isn’t much more the high school can do about helping parents figure out how to manage the system as a whole and how to make it work for them specifically. That’s where FAFSAssist™ comes in to level the playing field.

Colleges use very sophisticated tools like yield management, data mining, data visualization, advanced analytics, predictive analytics, resource alignment, and student recruiting strategies.  These are used by the colleges’ enrollment manager and their job is to make that every year each new freshman seat is filled for the highest possible price. That’s why it’s so important to use a system of success.  That’s where FAFSAssist™ comes in — to level the playing field.

FAFSAssist™ provides the information parents need to make the best choices for their families.  They need expert software to automatically manage the confusing financial aid forms with no mistakes and get them in on time AND also file the forms! The investment is just $149.00.
